Re: No power

This worked for mine, anyways...

My Sherwood / Newcastle R-945 unit kept shutting itself off directly after powering up - turned out that one of the speaker wires had a fault - found after disconnecting all inputs / outputs as recommended (and searching / testing with voltmeter).

Thanks for the assist!

Re: No power

Disconnect everything from the unit and see if it still does it.
if it does i would check the output transistor (ic).

I have been having my receiver for over 1 year now and just yesterday when I turned it on, within 5 secs ,the receiver turns off. I cannot get it to stay on.......Any suggestions......

most likely reason could be a short in one of the speaker wire at the connector. Check each speaker connection one by one. If this is not the cause then most likely the power supply is cutting off. The unit may still be under warranty if only one year old. Contact your local Sherwood support outlet.

Keeps turning itself off

If Both speakers are working at a low volume and you turn it up and it clips and shuts off you have one of 3 problems. you have over driven your speakers and one has shorted the voice coil but still will work at low volume, its a overload protection for ohms short in receiver. unhook each speaker and turn balance to the one hooked up and turn up receiver if it shuts off do the same with other speaker to determine which side is bad. 2 speaker wires are touching at speaker or receiver. 3 a bad receiver output transister. Good luck.

It shuts off afer 5 seconds when powered on.

Does the unit output sound when powered on? If no sound can be heard, and you only hear a click after 5 sec. then your power circuit may have a faulty diode.

Sherwood rv 6030r does not turn on.

Try these simple trick to find out yor remote control working or not....
Point the remote control towards the Camera of a Mobile Camera phone,with the camera on. While pressing remote, we can see a light (Infra Red) coming from its IR LED through the Mobile Camera if the Remote is working.
If the remote is OK, then the problem with the Remote Sensor or related components of the receiver.

No power

The Sherwood R-945 has at least 6 fuses inside - any one of them could keep the system from powering on properly. The lowest power fuse is rated at only 35 MILIamps, I believe ( it's element is barely visible to the naked eye ). Check that all fuses are intact (with the power off)

My R-945 unit kept shutting itself off directly after powering up - turned out that one of the speaker wires had a fault - (found after hours searching with voltmeter). Check that all Inputs / Outputs are secure.

Good luck with yours!
